I’m pretty sure that image is corrupted…let’s call it a mirror malfunction, shall we?

Still a work in progress – though…while I type this I’m thinking I could paint on this for two days, a week, two months or six years and a lot of people just simply would not notice a difference. (or comment, or check the like button)So I may stop soon – as soon as I’m reasonably sure the work fairly represents my technical abilities – ’cause, you know….

before…(after is probably nearer than I think)

Sometimes I feel like, well, in the case of me and my art-making, that painting is a little like constructing a sentence.  The piece needs a subject…without a subject, well, you don’t really have anything….  That’s because, from my perspective, I work with a subject in mind….but, I’m painting along and suddenly I’ve come to realize that I do not know what the subject is here….it’s just too ambiguous I think.  And, there.  I’ve said nothing as well.

I think, as a painter, you know you’re work is done when you lose interest…

Yes, it’s complete and I must say that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only part of this painting that the viewer looks at – at least from the comments on Facebook (mostly male)- is this guy’s dick and its size.  Well, that was blunt, wasn’t it?  It prompted me to rework his scrotum, which, of course, made me more than a little self-conscious – where previously I had no reservations.  Geeze.  It is done – but now I think his head is too big!  ha!
